Sail Away....



Hi again, I wanted to join in this week's challenge at LOTV which is a song, so I chose Sail Away by Enya and made a card for Father's day. This is my first time colouring this sweet stamp and I am in love! The papers are CTMH. I followed the sketch at Truly Scrumptious, I added a nice vintage metal button and sailboat for the challenge at Simon Says Stamp/Show, I coloured with copics, added some cute buttons and jute and that's it! I am also entering Stamp-N-Doodle - - Masculine and NO flowers, The Ribbon Reel - Photo Inspiration, Creative Inspirations -- Stitching, Fashionista Friday - For men.

oooh wow wow wow!!! this is sooooooooooo gorgeous!!!!! I love the colours of this and all the fabby textures .... I love the fact that you are still able to give a male card so much detail!!! I am lost without flowers and swirls , so a male card for me always turns out a bit plain and boring!! thanks so much for your inspiration!!!! Hugs Juls
